Missing the bus

25th September 1998 at 01:00
EDINBURGH primary teachers have been using the new City of Edinbvrgh (nae wonder so many kids have spelling difficulties) baseline assessment materials on their P1 children. The brightly coloured manual shows pictures of objects familiar to weans, including a bus.

But the bus is a green C12 rather than the familiar red Lothian Regional Transport variety. Are our city's high heid yins trying to tell LRT something about the infrequency of their services on certain routes? I think we should be told.
